Embassy Court, Welling


Type and size of project

A mixed use development consisting of 64 units split into 3 blocks. The Project consisted of 1 and 3 bed apartments built above a new Tesco store on the High Street in Welling.

This project has been seen as breathing new life into the very heart of Welling. The new development has been built on a brownfield site and is situated directly on the main High Street. A third of the homes will be affordable housing units meeting Employers Requirements in terms of life time homes and full chain of custody and will achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3.

Construction on site started in November 2009 and the third and final block was competed in June 2010

Key Facts

As the project is on the busy High Street in Welling access was very tight, so scheduled deliveries and transport management was key to the success of this project.

Timber Frame was built off a concrete transfer structure, utilising floor cassettes complete with factory fitted insulation to achieve a u-Value of 0.23 W/m2K.

Walls were standard open panel timber frame, and the roof was designed using cassettes with firring pieces and 18mm WBP plywood.

The kit was erected using a tower crane supplied by the client. 15mm OSB was applied to kitchen and bathroom walls to ensure a solid fixing for grab rails and kitchen units.
